Tuesday 11th February saw Newcastle High School for Girls stage its annual Art and Design Fashion show.
Garments and full collections designed and made by Senior School girls from 13–18 years old graced the catwalk in two shows that were entirely choreographed, staged and modelled by the girls themselves. The event marks the conclusion to the hard work, dedication and commitment the pupils put into producing an array of contemporary fashion looks. All garments were designed with the catwalk in mind, which forced the girls to combine their creativity with consideration for how best to showcase their work alongside music, movement and lighting.
This year’s catwalk looks found inspiration from artists such as Barbara Kruger, Barbara Hepworth, Victoria Villasana, and embodied an array of global, pop-cultural and scientific themes from Tokyo to Peaky Blinders to human biology. Spectators of the show were amazed by the creativity of our girls and the professional execution of their ideas, clearly evidenced by the exquisite garments on the runway.
